book of knowledge

True wisdom is a loss of misconceptions rather than an accumulation of knowledge.
Do not hoard facts and call yourself wise.

Sages realize they have always had enough,
And so do not seek more for themselves.  *

~ Lao Tzu

These words made me pause today. Gathering more and more knowledge doesn’t make us wise.

Wisdom comes from within us, and through our experience of life.

If you are always seeking more knowledge, then you may be missing out.

… You are enough.

  2. Powerful truth…that we often find hard to see within ourselves. Yet it is always there…waiting for us to access it. Trust is foundational to the process of realizing our wisdom. 💕


  3. Love this! Being willing to set aside what you ” know” and hear out other ideas, and be open, is important
